Mom and two daughters wore green duct tape over their mouths.
Free-speech liberals and pseudo-feminists — the same group that welcomes hordes of misogynistic Muslims into our nation — created an online uproar over the photo.
The photographer noted, "“I would like to say that as a female I do NOT and have never promoted violence to women! I do not support abuse, or the degradation of women."
Hannah Hawkes wrote on Facebook, “I have been called every name in the book, and have received some very hateful and vulgar comments and messages.”
Facebook removed the photo.

On Sunday, Louisana woman Hannah Hawkes, who calls herself a “newly established, local photographer”, posted a series images from a family Christmas shoot on her Facebook page.
Most of the shots were lovely, showing a mother, father and their three children smiling. But in one of the images, the mother and two daughters wore bright green duct covering their mouths and the father held a sign saying ‘Peace on Earth’. Their son’s mouth was duct tape-free.
The image was shared on Reddit yesterday and was slammed on social media.
“I can’t believe this sort of offensive photography is tolerated in our society. Poorly composed, overexposed, uncreative. Your photography is bad, and you should feel bad,” wrote one user on Ms Hawkes’ Facebook page.
Another said: “I can’t believe a female photographer would take part in something so demeaning and damaging to women and girls. Women being deprived of their voices by men is no laughing matter. It wasn’t cute. It wasn’t humorous. It was horrifying.”
Ms Hawkes defended her photo on her Facebook page, after the image was removed by Facebook.
“I have been called every name in the book, and have received some very hateful and vulgar comments and messages,” she wrote.
“I would like to say that as a female I do NOT and have never promoted violence to women! I do not support abuse, or the degradation of women.
